I had a beautiful baby girl in May of 08, but I think I'm still suffering from post-partum.  I have terrible visions/thoughts of harming my baby and it has me scared to do  a lot of things... I have never acted, but am so scared.  What do I do?  Is this normal?

Some women with scary thoughts like you are having are suffering from something called postpartum OCD.  These are called intrusive thoughts.  This is where you have thoughts of harming yourself or others (including the baby) but you know those thoughts make no sense and you would do anything to prevent yourself from acting on them.  You should reach out to your healthcare professional and let him or her know what you are experiencing.  With treatment, you can get better and the thoughts will go away.
